Balanced Whole System Parenting
Everyone Wins When You Apply Chinese Medicine's Theory Of Balance To The Family
by Ethan Borg
As parents in today's day and age how do we find balance for ourselves and for our children? For many of us who struggle with the greatest challenge of our lives – raising our children – this is the million dollar question. It can be helpful to answer this provocative question not with some cheap fifty cent sound bite but with deep wisdom with ancient roots. To that we turn to Chinese medicine, one of the oldest whole system theories advocating personal and inter-personal balance for health, harmony, and vitality. Apply this rich theory to the family and you encounter something wonderful and unexpected: insight and a helpful path towards a more cooperative and harmonious family system. Explore the concepts of Qi, Yin and Yang, and the Five Elements as they relate to each member of your family. Discover your own Five Element “constitution” and how this impacts how you parent. Along the way, you will see your children and your spouse from a totally new perspective, find strategies to rectify resentments and imbalanced emotions, and learn how to get out of the rut you and your family members likely fall into every time you find yourselves in conflict.
